Japanese sports brand Mizuno is in pole position to become Lazio’s new kit provider, competing with Kappa.
As reported by Italian newspaper Il Tempo (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) yesterday, the Biancocelesti’s agreement with current kit provider Macron will conclude at the end of this season, ending an eight-year partnership together.
Offers to become Lazio‘s new kit provider have already arrived, with the first coming from Robe di Kappa. They made an offer to the Biancocelesti in 2012 to take over from Puma, but talks fell through as Macron was preferred instead.
The other idea is Mizuno, a historic Japanese brand, who have come forward with an interesting offer, making them currently the favourites to take over from Macron next year.
Mizuno, who were founded 115 years ago in Osaka, have a long history working in sports equipment and gear, providing products globally for a variety of sports including football, golf, tennis, baseball, and more.
